Now is the winter of man's discontent because his wife won't let him put up tho stove.

"Get there Eli," may he heard ou every street corner, at all times day or night. It is lisped by the babe, aud it is spoken in drawn out tones by the old man; it is sweetly whispered by the handsome blush ing school maid, and shouted from the door by every clerk in the city; it is yelled across the street or adown the alley by the street Arab, and the roosters aro just talking it up as a new song for waking the deni rens in their neighborhood. Even great moral and religious papers (tho Independence Tribune, for in stance,) aro beginning to ut-a it in Herculean, editorials.

Worcester Academy will open next Monday, November 13th, with four teachers. A ten years course of study has been adopted. Seven years common and high school course, and three years Academic and collegiate. The great aim in the course of study has been to make it practical, and to fit men and women for real life. The terms w ill le as follows : la common school course, er month, in advance, $1.00 la Academic course, per month, in advance 3.30 Or, if tuition for a term be paid in advance reduction of one dol lar per term of 3 months will be made from the above prices, i. e: Academic, course, per term in advance SiO.OJ la common school course, per term, in advar, 'W This reduction applies only to those who enter at the beginning of a term. No pupil can enter any class in the Academy without a written permission from the Directors of the Academy. The permissions can be obtained of G. W. Grcerf, Treasurer of the Academy by paying the tuition and assenting to the rules governing the Academy. No pupil will be received for less than a month. No deduction will le made for ( absences less than two weeks, and then only incase of protracted sickness. i It is of greatest importance both ' to the pupils and to the sohool that j pupils come at the beginning el the term.

Wc w ant to apply this consideration to the various small'pox stories this week. You hear that some one has the small pox. You never heard a doctor say so.- You have no evidence that it is true ; yet at the risk of utter ruin to business and trade you go und (ell it. There never has been a case of small pox in Vinita, nor in ten miles of it. This is the'uuth about it. It is a crime for thoughtless people to stop schools and business by re tailing irresponsible stories which at best are only hearsay thrice heard. The duty of the hour is to know truth and then tell it. X0VESBEB MUSINGS. Ei).

II. E. Vinita, t'. X., Nov. 5th, ISsi'. I'O-OPEUATIO. Emtoii Ixdiax Ciiiektaix: As you arc anxious to have parties correspond with your valuable jgurnal and seeing that but few respond to your solcitation, I have concluded to break the ice by writ ing something for the benefit of my fellow men, viz: I have a pro ject in view, which, if it meets the approval of the people, would, in my opinion be a great advantage to all concerned. It is this: If llO citizens of this place w ould form a co-operative society and let the shares be 830 per share, which would amount to f-'iHW now, if the company would then select a suitable location for a sheep ranch, and invest the funds in sheep it would be the means of starting an industry that would pay the share holders handsomely, betides net ting an example to other localities throughout the w hole Indian Ter ritory. Co-operation has been a great success among the working class in Europe, particularly in England. It was first sartfd in that country in the year I believe, by the Rev. Dr. Hidyook. He has recetitly been lecturing in New York, Boston r-iidottur it ies, on Co-operation. It is needless for me to onter in to all the details, in this article, with respect to the practicability of establishing such an organiza tion. I have spoken with several intelligent men in and around Vinita, who are anxious to fo into the scheme, ail that is required is for those who are not posted, is to consu't with those who have read of the beneficial results aicruing from such societies, if so, I feel joritive that we can start litre, the pioneer stink or sheep Co-operative Association, of the Indian Territory, like every other enter- prise it requires prudent mannge rncnt, and it wou'd also be neces sary to have Council pass an act to make the by-laws c-f the com pany binding in the courts of tiie Nation, so that they mvr be legal ly enforced. Very respectfully. Tho. Howie. Vhiit... C. N.. Nw. :L, Ou (bo IV in? JIb. Editor: After spending some weeks in the Territory, taking in the fairs at Muskogee aud Viuitu, which o much bus Leea well and truly said, that to add unythiug more might seem superiluous in mo. The week intervening between those fairs I spent very plcusautly in risitiug the venerable Chief of the Delaware, Eev. Charles Joiineycake, who lives sonic twenty miles west of Vinita. I found thiskiuU laid hospitable gcnUe uian living iu ease and atflucnt'e sur rounded by an interesting family oi daughters, all married except the youngest, Sliss Auna, who does the honors ani seems au indispensible at traction to the old hume. liis build ings are extensive and admirably ar ranged, such as we used to see iu the South, in ante bell am times. How much laud he owns I did not enuuire, and it is doubtful whether he could have told me if I had, but as to its ricliint's and fertility any one wi'.h half an eye could see. Much of this laud is in a high state of cultivation and no where have J seen a finer orchard. loaded down as it was with all the fin est varieties of fruit, and though a strict temperance man, he does not neglect his vineyurd. In bis front yard I was pleased to see, for the first und last time, iu two years, red top clover growing luxuriantly. Bat while time and spat's will not allow sa ade quate description of this beautiful idace and aiirroiuiitiii-, ti,cK arc one or two things eminently worthy of no tice. Close by in a lnaj-uiiiceut grove, interspersed with giaut walnut, pecan, aud like grow th stauds in beautiful contrast with the deep given of the forest, the white church, a model struc ture of thu kind, well finished aud com plete in every particular, aud supplied with a fine organ that adds much to the otherwise good singing. Here every Sabbath morning this good man collects the young Delaware iu Sab bath school, teaching them from thu good old text book, the llible. This is conducted iu English; after which he preaches to them iu their own tongue, lieing s minister of high standing iu the liaptist church, I feit uo little iu tcrcst iu hearing liiiu. His text, or rather the subject, was tho suffering of our Savior on thu Ciosa. 1 was much pleased, possessing as ltd certain ly does, iu a high degree, the gifts aud graces of oratory ; and to me the lan guage seemed more musical than any thing I had ever heard before. The last but not least, is the school house, under the same fostering care a good school is kept up, presided over at preaeut by Slajor Ivey, and cxper ieueed and popular teacher of pleasiu maimers and acknowledged ability, to who I shall alwa.ta f' ei indebted, for bis kindness and courtesy to me dur ing my stay, and hope his elforti iu the cause of education may long continue to be duly appreciated by thegood )eo plu of Lightning C'rouk.

Oue Train 1 rj. tu ( rs While Auother IralU Is -.:uilig ou tau Croosinii, On last Saturday evening a Triaco freight train ran into a Sliss-uni l'scif ic freight, w hich w as standing on the crossing of tho two roads, at the Tria co depot, throwing three Hat cars oil' of the track, an I heaving one of thein in to the depot platform, budly demolish ing it. Two of the cars received but little damage, while one was broken Into and had to be sent to the shops. No serious damage was done otherwise except breaking the headlight off of the 'Frisco engine. No one was hurt. Who was to blamo for the wreck is hard to tell. The engineer on the TiiM-o thought the track was clear, m-c irg boi cars on either side of the track, and pulled in. The Missouri Pacific had beeu standingon the cross ing about ten minutes, but was just getting ready to pull out when the 'Frisco struck it. la one minute more the crossing would have been cleared and tho 'Frisco could have passed more easily. The wreck wss clean-d away In about three hours and both traius moved on. About -5 feet of the plat form w as torn up, but men were at w ork early on Monday morning putting iu a new and better one. It is luck for the boys that no one was hurt and no more damage done, for had the 'Erioc.) train been a few seconds later, the Mis souri PaciiU' w ould have lieeti in mo tion and the damage might have lx-cn dollars where it is cents, and niorethsn likclr there would have beeu some lives lost.
